Maxspect gyre users.....a question

I have been using a gyre 130 on my RS900 for about 2 months. I always found it to be pretty noisy but powerful. I came home today and it's near silent and so much more powerful. I did have it running at 100% but it's now on about 60%. Has this happened to anyone else?

I have the gyre 130 as well and at first it was loud but then i started to move it down a little further into the tank it got quieter. I use he alternating gyre mode at 50% each way.

Hoping mine quietens a little. Only been in my tank a couple days. All the reviews a read said how quiet it was. So far am not convinced. I am impressed with the amount of water it can move though

Madstyle, how long is your tank? It's virtually silent now, I'm happy with this obviously but just a bit taken back!

About the same as mine. The reason I ask is that I've turned mine down considerably so want to see what someone with a similar tank ran theirs at

My mp10QD as well I thought was going to be quiet...have to have it at 50% or less to barely not hear anything. Still there's something....think these new pumps are not meant to be at 100% they rather have you bump up and spend more money to have a larger version of there pump
